Xtreme Caged Combat is one of the top MMA promotions in the Philadelphia area. They've had stacked fight card after stacked fight card in the 215 area. On March 1st at the National Guard Armory, Xtreme Caged Combat is back with their latest fight event, XCC: Unrivaled. Xtreme Caged Combat: Unrivaled is another top notch fight card, with XCC Bantamweight Champion Matt "Razor Sharp" Rizzo (6-1) looking to defend his belt against the always dangerous Ohio native, Josh Killion (9-4). Rizzo was originally scheduled to face Darren Mima for the Bantamweight Championship, but Mima had to drop off the card due to injury. The co-main event for the night is Binns Management client Gemiyale "Baby Hercules"Adkins, taking on George "Lights Out" Sheppard. Also on the card are two Amateur title fights. Randall Brown (5-2) and Jim Rendiero (4-0) fight for the XCC Amateur Welterweight Title, and Katlyn Chookagian (6-0) takes on Valerie Aspaas (5-0) for the XCC Amateur Female Flyweight Title.
Matt "Razor Sharp" Rizzo holds a record of 6-1, and is currently on a 4-fight win streak. He is a Matrix Fights, Locked in the Cage, and Xtreme Caged Combat veteran, and has finished 5 of his 6 victories within the first round. Rizzo fights out of the Revolution Academy in Levittown, PA, and has already defended his XCC Bantamweight Title twice. This upcoming challenge in Josh Killion, might just be his toughest challenge yet.
Joshua Killion is a 23 year old fighting out of Defiance, Ohio and holding a Professional MMA record of 9-4. His most recent victory came at Matrix Fights 8 in Philadelphia against Bellator MMA veteran Brylan Van Artsdalen, in what many believe to have been Fight of the Night. Killion has won 7 of his last 9 fights, including 5 finishes (all via Submission). Killion is one of the toughest tests Rizzo has ever faced, but the same can be said about Rizzo for Killion. One thing can be assured, if you love MMA you will love this fight.
Also fighting on the card is CES MMA, Matrix Fights, and Bellator MMA veteran Gemiyale "Baby Hercules" Adkins as he takes on the impressive George Sheppard. Adkins is one of the most exciting fighters on the East Coast, always looking for the Knockout in his fights. He holds a record of 8-6, with never being finished in any of his Professional MMA bouts. Adkins has faced the likes of Bellator MMA fighter Desmond Green, TUF 11 runner-up Kris McCray, and most recently UFC Lightweight Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman. He takes on Sheppard who holds an impressive record of 14-7, and has fought the likes of Charlie Brenneman, UFC fighter Jim Hettes, and Darrell Horcher. Sheppard is also an exciting fighter letting only 4 of his 10 victories go to the judge's scorecards.
